Technonet is the protest form of the 1990s-picketing on the information
highways. For example, a fast-growing assortment of men and women around the
world are using the Internet (started by the US military for information
transfer and exchange that would never be interfered with) to draw attention
to a questionable military project in Alaska. Now these Internetting,
e-mailing, faxing folks are blowing holes in the US Department of Defense
secrecy wall by using the government’s own system.
The printed-word part of the protest started when Dennis Specht, an
anti-nuclear activist then living in Alaska, sent a news item to
the topic of HAARP - the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program. Then,
an Alaskan political activist and science researcher in Anchorage, Nick Begich, networked with
Patrick and Gael Crystal Flanagan, who are
self-described "technomonks" living in Sedona, Arizona, and was told to
check out that same Australian-based magazine. Begich was surprised to see
an item from his home town in NEXUS and immediately headed to the local
library to dig out the documents cited in the article.
That research led to articles and the book, Angels Don’t Play this HAARP:
Advances in Tesla Technology, which is 230 pages of detailed information on
this intrusive project. This article will only give highlights. Despite the
amount of research (350 footnotes), at its heart it is a story about
ordinary people who took on an extraordinary challenge.
HAARP BOILS THE UPPER ATMOSPHERE
HAARP will zap the upper atmosphere with a focused and steerable
electromagnetic beam. It is an advanced model of an ’ionospheric heater’.
(The ionosphere is the electrically-charged sphere surrounding Earth’s upper
atmosphere. It ranges between about 40 to 600 miles above Earth’s surface.)
Put simply, the apparatus for HAARP is a reversal of a radio telescope:
antennas send out signals instead of receiving. HAARP is the test run for a
super-powerful radio wave beaming technology that lifts areas of the
ionosphere by focusing a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves
then bounce back onto Earth and penetrate everything-living and dead.
publicity gives the impression that the High-frequency Active Auroral
Research Program is mainly an academic project with the goal of changing the
ionosphere to improve communications for our own good. However, other US
military documents put it more clearly: HAARP aims to learn how to "exploit
the ionosphere for Department of Defense purposes". Communicating with
submarines is only one of those purposes.
Press releases and other information from the military on HAARP continually
downplay what it could do. Publicity documents insist that the HAARP project
is no different than other ionospheric heaters operating safely throughout
the world in places such as Arecibo, Puerto Rico; Tromsø, Norway; and the
former Soviet Union. However, a 1990 government document indicates that the radio frequency (RF) power zap will drive the ionosphere to unnatural
"...at the highest
HF powers available in the West, the instabilities
commonly studied are approaching their maximum RF energy dissipative
capability, beyond which the plasma processes will ’run away’ until the next
limiting factor is reached."
If the military, in cooperation with the University of Alaska, Fairbanks,
can show that this new ground-based "Star Wars" technology is sound, they
both win. The military has a relatively inexpensive defense shield and the
university can brag about the most dramatic geophysical manipulation since
atmospheric explosions of nuclear bombs. After successful testing, they
would have the military megaprojects of the future and huge markets for
Alaska’s North Slope natural gas.
Looking at the other patents which built on the work of a Texas physicist
named Bernard Eastlund, it becomes clearer how the military intends to use
the HAARP transmitter. It also makes governmental denials less believable.
The military knows how it intends to use this technology, and has made it
clear in their documents. The military has deliberately misled the public
through sophisticated word games, deceit and outright disinformation.
The military says the HAARP system could:
give the military a tool to replace the electromagnetic pulse effect of
atmospheric thermonuclear devices (still considered a viable option by the
military through at least 1986)
replace the huge Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) submarine communication
system operating in Michigan and Wisconsin with a new and more compact
be used to replace the over-the-horizon radar system that was once planned
for the current location of HAARP, with a more flexible and accurate system
provide a way to wipe out communications over an extremely large area, while
keeping the military’s own communications systems working
provide a wide-area Earth-penetrating tomography which, if combined with the
computing abilities of EMASS and Cray computers, would make it possible to
verify many parts of nuclear nonproliferation and peace agreements
be a tool for geophysical probing to find oil, gas and mineral deposits over
a large area
be used to detect incoming low-level planes and cruise missiles, making
other technologies obsolete
The above abilities seem like a good idea to all who believe in sound
national defense and to those concerned about cost-cutting. However, the
possible uses which the HAARP records do not explain, and which can only be
found in US Air Force, Army, Navy and other federal agency records, are
alarming. Moreover, effects from the reckless use of these power levels in
our natural shield-the ionosphere-could be cataclysmic, according to some
Two Alaskans put it bluntly. A founder of the
NO HAARP movement, Clare Zickuhr, says: "The military is going to give the ionosphere a big kick and
see what happens."
The military failed to tell the public that they do not know what exactly
will happen, but a Penn State science article brags about that uncertainty.
Macho science? The HAARP project uses the largest energy levels yet played
with, by what Begich and Manning call "the big boys with their new toys". It
is an experiment on the sky, and experiments are done to find out something
not already known. Independent scientists told Begich and Manning that a
HAARP-type ’skybuster’ with its unforeseen effects could be an act of global
The patents described below were the package of ideas which were originally
controlled by ARCO Power Technologies Incorporated (APTI), a subsidiary of
Atlantic Richfield Company, one of the biggest oil companies in the world.
APTI was the contractor that built the HAARP facility.
ARCO sold this
subsidiary, the patents and the second phase construction contract to
E-Systems in June 1994.
E-Systems is one of the biggest intelligence contractors in the world, doing
work for the CIA, defense intelligence organizations and others. US$1.8
billion of their annual sales are to these organizations, with $800 million
black projects - projects so secret that even the United States Congress
isn’t told how the money is being spent.
E-Systems was bought out by Raytheon which is one of the largest
contractors in the world. In 1994 Raytheon was listed as number 42 on the
"Fortune 500" list of companies. Raytheon has thousands of patents, some of
which will be valuable in the HAARP project. Twelve patents are the backbone
of the HAARP project, and are now buried among the thousands of others held
in the name of Raytheon.
Bernard J. Eastlund’s
US Patent #4,686,605, "Method and Apparatus for
Altering a Region in the Earth’s Atmosphere, Ionosphere and/or
Magnetosphere", was sealed for a year under a government secrecy order.
The Eastlund ionospheric heater was different: the radio frequency (RF)
radiation was concentrated and focused to a point in the ionosphere. This
difference throws an unprecedented amount of energy into the ionosphere. The
Eastlund device would allow a concentration of one watt per cubic
compared to others only able to deliver about one millionth of one watt.
This huge difference could lift and change the ionosphere in the ways
necessary to create futuristic effects described in the patent. According to
the patent, the work of
Nikola Tesla in the early 1900s formed the basis of
What would this technology be worth to ARCO, the owner of the patents? They
could make enormous profits by beaming electrical power, without wires, from
a powerhouse in the gas fields to the consumer.
For a time, HAARP researchers could not prove that this was one of the
intended uses for HAARP. In April 1995, however, Begich found other patents,
connected with a ’key personnel’ list for APTI. Some of these new
patents were indeed a wireless system for sending electrical power.
Eastlund’s patent said the technology can confuse or completely disrupt
airplanes’ and missiles’ sophisticated guidance systems. Further, this
ability to spray large areas of Earth with electromagnetic waves of varying
frequencies, and to control changes in those waves, makes it possible to
knock out communications on land or sea as well as in the air. The patent
"Thus, this invention provides the ability to put unprecedented amounts of
power in the Earth’s atmosphere at strategic locations and to maintain the
power injection level, particularly if random pulsing is employed, in a
manner far more precise and better controlled than heretofore accomplished
by the prior art, particularly by detonation of nuclear devices of various
yields at various altitudes...
"...it is possible not only to interfere with third party communications but
to take advantage of one or more such beams to carry out a communications
network even though the rest of the world’s communications are disrupted.
Put another way, what is used to disrupt another’s communications can be
employed by one knowledgeable of this invention as a communication network
at the same time.
"...large regions of the atmosphere could be lifted to an unexpectedly high
altitude so that missiles encounter unexpected and unplanned drag forces
with resultant destruction...
"Weather modification is possible by, for example, altering upper atmosphere
wind patterns by constructing one or more plumes of atmospheric particles
which will act as a lens or focusing device. ...molecular modifications of
the atmosphere can take place so that positive environmental effects can be
achieved. Besides actually changing the molecular composition of an
atmospheric region, a particular molecule or molecules can be chosen for
increased presence. For example, ozone, nitrogen, etc. concentrations in the
atmosphere could be artificially increased..."
Begich found 11 other
APTI patents. They told how to make "Nuclear-sized
Explosions without Radiation", power-beaming systems, over-the-horizon
radar, detection systems for missiles carrying nuclear warheads,
electromagnetic pulses previously produced by thermonuclear weapons and
other "Star Wars" tricks. This cluster of patents underlay the
Related research by Begich and Manning uncovered bizarre schemes. For
example, US Air Force documents revealed that a system had been developed
for manipulating and disrupting human mental processes through pulsed
radio-frequency radiation (the stuff of HAARP) over large geographical
areas. The most telling material about this technology came from writings of
Zbigniew Brzezinski (former National Security Adviser to US President
Carter) and J. F. MacDonald (science adviser to US President
Johnson and a
Professor of Geophysics at UCLA), as they wrote about use of power-beaming
transmitters for geophysical and environmental warfare. The documents showed
how these effects might be caused, and the negative effects on human health
The mental-disruption possibilities for HAARP are the most disturbing. More
than 40 pages of the book, with dozens of footnotes, chronicle the work of
Harvard professors, military planners and scientists as they plan and test
this use of the electromagnetic technology. For example, one of the papers
describing this use was from the International Red Cross in Geneva. It even
gave the frequency ranges where these effects could occur-the same ranges
which HAARP is capable of broadcasting.
The following statement was made more than 25 years ago in a book which
Brzezinski wrote while a professor at Columbia University:
"Political strategists are tempted to
exploit research on the brain and
human behaviour. Geophysicist Gordon J. F. MacDonald-specialist in problems
of warfare-says accurately-timed, artificially-excited electronic strokes ’could lead to a pattern of oscillations that produce relatively high power
levels over certain regions of the Earth... In this way, one could develop a
system that would seriously impair the brain performance of very large
populations in selected regions over an extended period...’ No matter how
deeply disturbing the thought of using the environment to manipulate
behavior for national advantages, to some the technology permitting such
use will very probably develop within the next few decades."
In 1966, MacDonald was a member of the President’s Science Advisory
Committee and later a member of the President’s Council on Environmental
Quality. He published papers on the use of environmental control
technologies for military purposes. The most profound comment he made as a
"The key to geophysical warfare is the identification of environmental
instabilities to which the addition of a small amount of energy would
release vastly greater amounts of energy."
While yesterday’s geophysicists predicted today’s advances, are
program managers delivering on the vision? The geophysicists recognized that
adding energy to the environmental soup could have large effects. However,
humankind has already added substantial amounts of electromagnetic energy
into our environment without understanding what might constitute critical
mass. The book by Begich and Manning raises questions. Have these additions
been without effect, or is there a cumulative amount beyond which
irreparable damage can be done? Is HAARP another step in a journey from
which we cannot turn back? Are we about to embark on another energy
experiment which unleashes another set of demons from Pandora’s box?
As early as 1970, Zbigniew Brzezinski predicted a "more controlled and
directed society" would gradually appear, linked to technology. This
would be dominated by an elite group which impresses voters by allegedly
superior scientific know-how.
Angels Don’t Play This HAARP further quotes
"Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values, this elite
would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using the latest modern
techniques for influencing public behaviour and keeping society under close
surveillance and control. Technical and scientific momentum would then feed
on the situation it exploits," Brzezinski predicted.
His forecasts proved accurate. Today, a number of new tools for
are emerging, and the temptation to use them increases steadily. The
policies to permit the tools to be used are already in place. How could the
United States be changed, bit by bit, into the predicted highly-controlled technosociety? Among the
’stepping stones’ Brzezinski expected were
persisting social crises and use of the mass media to gain the public’s
In another document prepared by the government, the US Air Force claims:
"The potential applications of
artificial electromagnetic fields are
wide-ranging and can be used in many military or quasi-military
situations... Some of these potential uses include dealing with terrorist
groups, crowd control, controlling breaches of security at military
installations, and antipersonnel techniques in tactical warfare. In all of
these cases the EM (electromagnetic) systems would be used to produce mild
to severe physiological disruption or perceptual distortion or
disorientation. In addition, the ability of individuals to function could be
degraded to such a point that they would be combat-ineffective. Another
advantage of electromagnetic systems is that they can provide coverage over
large areas with a single system. They are silent, and countermeasures to
them may be difficult to develop... One last area where electromagnetic
radiation may prove of some value is in enhancing abilities of individuals
for anomalous phenomena."
Do these comments point to uses already somewhat developed? The author of
the government report refers to an earlier Air Force document about the uses
of radio-frequency radiation in combat situations. (Here, Begich and
note that HAARP is the most versatile and the largest radio-frequency
radiation transmitter in the world.)
The United States congressional record deals with the use of HAARP for
penetrating the Earth with signals bounced off the ionosphere. These signals
are used to look inside the planet to a depth of many kilometers in order to
locate underground munitions, minerals and tunnels. For 1996 the US Senate
has set aside US$15 million to develop this ability alone: Earth-penetrating
tomography. The problem is that the frequency needed for Earth-penetrating
radiations is within the frequency range most cited for disruption of human
mental functions. It may also have profound effects on migration patterns of
fish and wild animals which rely on an undisturbed energy field to find
As if electromagnetic pulses in the sky and mental disruption were not
enough, Eastlund bragged that the super-powerful ionospheric heater could
control weather. Begich and Manning brought to light government documents
indicating that the military has weather-control technology. When HAARP is
eventually built to its full power level, it could create weather effects
over entire hemispheres. If one government experiments with the world’s
weather patterns, what is done in one place will impact everyone else on the
planet. Angels Don’t Play This HAARP explains a principle behind some of
Nikola Tesla’s inventions-resonance-which affects planetary systems.
BUBBLE OF ELECTRIC PARTICLES
Angels Don’t Play This HAARP includes interviews with independent scientists
such as Elizabeth Rauscher. She has a Ph.D., a long and impressive career in
high-energy physics, and has been published in prestigious science journals
and books. Rauscher commented on HAARP: "You’re pumping tremendous energy
into an extremely delicate molecular configuration that comprises these
multi-layers we call the ionosphere." The ionosphere is prone to catalytic
reactions, she explained: if a small part is changed, a major change in the
ionosphere can happen.
In describing the ionosphere as a delicately balanced system, Dr Rauscher
shared her mental picture of it: a soap bubble-like sphere surrounding
Earth’s atmosphere, with movements swirling over the surface of the bubble.
If a big enough hole is punched through it, she predicts it could pop.
SLICING THE IONOSPHERE
Physicist Daniel Winter, Ph.D., of Waynesville, North Carolina, says
high-frequency emissions can couple with long wave (extremely low frequency
uses to distribute information as vibrations to synchronise dances of life in the biosphere.
Dan terms this geomagnetic
action "Earth’s information bloodstream", and says it is likely that
coupling of HAARP HF (high frequency) with natural ELF (extremely low
frequency) can cause unplanned, unsuspected side-effects.
David Yarrow of Albany, New York, is a researcher with a background in
electronics. He described possible interactions of HAARP radiations with the
ionosphere and Earth’s magnetic grid:
"HAARP will not burn ’holes’ in the ionosphere. That is a dangerous
understatement of what HAARP’s giant gigawatt beam will do. Earth is
spinning relative to thin electric shells of the multilayer membrane of
that absorb and shield Earth’s surface from intense solar radiation,
including charged particle storms in solar winds erupting from the Sun.
Earth’s axial spin means that HAARP-in a burst lasting more than a few
minutes-will slice through the ionosphere like a microwave knife. This
produces not a hole, but a long tear-an incision.
CRUDELY PLUCKING THE STRINGS
"Second concept: As Earth rotates, HAARP will slice across geomagnetic
flux...a donut-shaped spool of magnetic strings-like longitude meridians (on
maps). HAARP may not ’cut’ these strings in Gaia’s magnetic mantle, but will
pulse each thread with harsh, out-of-harmony high frequencies. These noisy
impulses will vibrate geomagnetic flux lines, sending vibrations all through
the geomagnetic web.
"The image comes to mind of a spider on its web. An insect lands, and the
web’s vibrations alert the spider to possible prey. HAARP will be a manmade
microwave finger poking at the web, sending out confusing signals, if not
tearing holes in the threads.
"Effects of this interference with symphonies of
Gaia’s geomagnetic harp are
unknown, and I suspect barely thought of. Even if thought of, the intent [of
HAARP] is to learn to exploit any effects, not to play in tune to global
Among other researchers quoted is
Paul Schaefer of Kansas City. His degree
is in electrical engineering and he spent four years building nuclear
weapons. "But most of the theories that we have been taught by scientists to
believe in seem to be falling apart," he says. He talks about imbalances
already caused by the industrial and atomic age, especially by radiation of
large numbers of tiny, high-velocity particles "like very small spinning
tops" into our environment.
The unnatural level of motion of highly
energetic particles in the atmosphere and in radiation belts surrounding
Earth is the villain in the weather disruptions, according to this model
which describes an Earth discharging its buildup of heat, relieving stress
and regaining a balanced condition through earthquakes and volcanic action.
"One might compare the abnormal energetic state of the Earth and its
atmosphere to a car battery which has become overcharged with the normal
flow of energy jammed up, resulting in hot spots, electrical arcing,
physical cracks and general turbulence as the pent-up energy tries to find
some place to go."
In a second analogy, Schaefer says:
"Unless we desire the death of our planet, we must end the production of
unstable particles which are generating the Earth’s fever. A first priority
to prevent this disaster would be to shut down all nuclear power plants and
end the testing of atomic weapons, electronic warfare and ’Star Wars’."
Meanwhile, the military builds
its biggest ionospheric heater yet, to
deliberately create more instabilities in a huge plasma layer - the ionosphere - and
to rev up the energy level of charged particles.
ELECTRONIC RAIN FROM THE SKY
The military has published papers about electron precipitation from the
magnetosphere (the outer belts of charged particles which stream toward
Earth’s magnetic poles) caused by manmade very-low-frequency electromagnetic
"These precipitated particles can produce secondary
ionization, emit X-rays,
and cause significant perturbation in the lower ionosphere."
Two Stanford University radio scientists offer evidence of what technology
can do to affect the sky by making waves on Earth. They showed that very low
frequency radio waves can vibrate the magnetosphere and cause high-energy
particles to cascade into the Earth’s atmosphere. By turning the signal on
or off, they could stop the flow of energetic particles.
Avalanches of energy dislodged by such radio waves could hit us hard. Their
work suggests that technicians could control global weather by sending
relatively small ’signals’ into the Van Allen belts (radiation belts around
Earth). Thus Tesla’s resonance effects can control enormous energies by tiny
The Begich/Manning book asks whether that knowledge will be used by war-oriented
or biosphere-oriented scientists.
The military has had about 20 years to work on weather warfare methods,
which it euphemistically calls weather modification. For example, rainmaking
technology was taken for a few test rides in Vietnam. The US Department of
Defense sampled lightning and hurricane manipulation studies in Project Skyfire and
Project Stormfury. And they looked at some complicated
technologies that would give big effects.
Angels Don’t Play This HAARP cites
an expert who says the military studied both lasers and chemicals which they
figured could damage the ozone layer over an enemy. Looking at ways to cause
earthquakes, as well as to detect them, was part of the project named Prime
Argus, decades ago. The money for that came from the Defense Advanced
Research Projects Agency (DARPA, now under the acronym
In 1994 the US Air Force revealed its Spacecast 2020 master plan which
includes weather control. Scientists have experimented with weather control
since the 1940s, but Spacecast 2020 noted that "using environmental
modification techniques to destroy, damage or injure another state [is]
prohibited". Having said that, the Air Force claimed that advances in
technology "compels a re-examination of this sensitive and potentially risky
FORTY YEARS OF ZAPPING THE SKY?
As far back as 1958, the chief White House adviser on weather modification,
Captain Howard T. Orville, said the US defense department was studying "ways
to manipulate the charges of the Earth and sky and so affect the weather by
using an electronic beam to ionize or de-ionize the atmosphere over a given
In 1966, Professor Gordon J. F. MacDonald was Associate Director of the
Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at the University of
California, Los Angeles, was a member of the President’s Science Advisory
Committee, and later a member of the President’s Council on Environmental
Quality. He published papers on the use of environmental control
technologies for military purposes. MacDonald made a revealing comment:
"The key to geophysical warfare is the identification of environmental
instabilities to which the addition of a small amount of energy would
release vastly greater amounts of energy."
World-recognized scientist MacDonald had a number of ideas for using the
environment as a weapon system and he contributed to what was, at the time,
the dream of a futurist. When he wrote his chapter, "How to Wreck the
Environment", for the book Unless Peace Comes, he was not kidding around. In
it he describes the use of weather manipulation, climate modification, polar
ice-cap melting or destabilization, ozone depletion techniques, earthquake
engineering, ocean wave control and brainwave manipulation using the
planet’s energy fields.
He also said that these types of weapons would be
developed and, when used, would be virtually undetectable by their victims.
Is HAARP that weapon? The military’s intention to do environmental
engineering is well-documented.
US Congress’s subcommittee hearings on Oceans and International Environment
looked into military weather and climate modification conducted in the early
1970s. "What emerged was an awesome picture of far-ranging research and
experimentation by the Department of Defense into ways environmental
tampering could be used as a weapon," said another author cited in Angels
Don’t Play This HAARP.
The revealed secrets surprised legislators. Would an inquiry into the state
of the art of electromagnetic manipulation surprise lawmakers today? They
may find out that technologies developed out of the HAARP experiments in
Alaska could deliver on Gordon MacDonald’s vision, because leading-edge
scientists are describing global weather as not only air pressure and
thermal systems but also as an electrical system.
SMALL INPUT, BIG EFFECT
HAARP zaps the ionosphere where it is relatively unstable. A point to
remember is that the ionosphere is an active electrical shield protecting
the planet from the constant bombardment of high-energy particles from space.
This conducting plasma, along with Earth’s magnetic field, traps the
electrical plasma of space and holds it back from going directly to the
Earth’s surface, says Charles Yost of Dynamic Systems, Leicester, North
"If the ionosphere is greatly disturbed, the atmosphere below is
Another scientist interviewed said there is a super-powerful electrical
connection between the ionosphere and the part of the atmosphere where our
weather comes onstage: the lower atmosphere.
One manmade electrical effect-power-line harmonic resonance-causes fallout
of charged particles from the Van Allen (radiation) belts, and the falling
ions cause ice crystals (which precipitate rain clouds).
What about HAARP? Energy blasted upward from an ionospheric heater is not
much compared to the total in the ionosphere, but HAARP documents admit that
thousandfold greater amounts of energy can be released in the ionosphere
than injected. As with MacDonald’s "key to geophysical warfare", "nonlinear"
effects (described in the literature about the ionospheric heater) mean
small input and large output.
Astrophysicist Adam Trombly told Manning that an acupuncture model is one
way to look at the possible effect of multi-gigawatt pulsing of the
ionosphere. If HAARP hits certain points, those parts of the ionosphere
could react in surprising ways.
Smaller ionospheric heaters such as the one at Arecibo are underneath
relatively placid regions of the ionosphere compared to the dynamic
movements nearer Earth’s magnetic poles. That adds another uncertainty to
HAARP: the unpredictable and lively upper atmosphere near the North Pole.
HAARP experimenters do not impress common-sense Alaskans such as
Barbara Zickuhr, who says: "They’re like boys playing with a sharp stick, finding a
sleeping bear and poking it in the butt to see what’s going to happen."
COULD THEY SHORT-CIRCUIT THE EARTH?
Earth as a spherical electrical system is a fairly well-accepted model.
However, those experimenters who want to make unnatural power connections
between parts of this system might not be thinking of possible consequences.
Electrical motors and generators can be caused to wobble when their circuits
are affected. Could human activities cause a significant change in a
planet’s electrical circuit or electrical field?
A paper in the respected
journal Science deals with manmade ionization from radioactive material, but
perhaps it could also be studied with HAARP-type skybusters in mind:
"For example, while changes in the Earth’s electric field resulting from a
solar flare modulating conductivity may have only a barely detectable effect
on meteorology, the situation may be different in regard to electric field
changes caused by manmade ionization..."
Meteorology, of course, is the study of the atmosphere and weather.
Ionization is what happens when a higher level of power is zapped into atoms
and knocks electrons off the atoms. The resulting charged particles are the
stuff of HAARP. "One look at the weather should tell us that we are on the
wrong path," says Paul Schaefer, commenting on HAARP-type technologies.
Angels Don’t Play This HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology is about the
military’s plan to manipulate that which belongs to the world: the
ionosphere. The arrogance of the United States Government in this is not
without precedent. Atmospheric nuclear tests had similar goals. More
recently, China and France put their people’s money to destructive use in
underground nuclear tests. It was recently reported that the US Government
spent US$3 trillion on its nuclear program since its beginnings in the
1940s. What new breakthroughs in life science could have been made with all
the money spent on death?
Begich, Manning, Roderick and others believe that democracies need to be
founded on openness rather than the secrecy which surrounds so much military
science. Knowledge used in developing revolutionary weapons could be used
for healing and helping mankind. Because they are used in new weapons,
discoveries are classified and suppressed. When they do appear in the work
of other independent scientists, the new ideas are often frustrated or
ridiculed, while military research laboratories continue to build their new
machines for the killing fields.
However, the book by Manning and Begich gives hope that the
military-industrial-academic-bureaucratic Goliath can be affected by the
combined power of determined individuals and the alternative press. Becoming
informed is the first step to empowerment.
The book, Angels Don’t Play This HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology,
